i would even pay to get such major bugs fixed in a shorter timeframe 
than a decade

what the hell has this to do with "ReadOnlyDirectories=/etc" besides 
that i then would have to set "ReadOnlyDirectories=/usr/local/etc" too?

no software has any bussiness even try to write in /etc, but even if it 
tries and fails it's no justification to refuse *read* from there 
without a hard restart

no there is no single way that ATS realods it's config when the config 
folder is readonly and it's only insane to detect "
User has changed config file ssl_multicert.config" but refuse to *read* 
the file becuase you can't write to it

[root@proxy:/var/log/trafficserver]$ cat *
[root@proxy:/var/log/trafficserver]$ touch 
[root@proxy:/var/log/trafficserver]$ /usr/bin/traffic_ctl config reload
[root@proxy:/var/log/trafficserver]$ cat *
